Stunning! Easy plant to grow and root. Friends all want a cutting! I learned how easy it was to root, when I moved it indoors for winter and put it in too bright a spot! Gave a precious cutting to my black-thumbed sister (how could I say no, cuttings on the counter in glass vase fully rooted!). She planted and immediately moved it outside..:in sun!! I told her to keep it indoors in shade, but nooo The mother plant is sitting on my porch, deep shade, full, shiny, huge leaves, 3 feet tall. My favorite plant EVER! Stunning!

This is planted on a very shady porch and it is wonderful!! It's at least 3ft tall and lush and its only Aug. 20th. By the time we have our 1st freeze (zone 5) this lovely plant will be stretching across to the door. I will be planting this again on both shady porches.Nancy Brown, Michigan, United States, 3 years ago
This plant is my absolute favorite! I bought this plant as a small, sickly looking thing from a local supermarket on Mothers Day 2015-and he's still alive and beautiful! I bring him into my office every winter (we live in Indiana, where it gets too cold!) I will say that the florescent lighting in my office has changed him some-his leaves now have a gorgeous red undertone and he stands out of his planter approximately 3 foot tall! (This plant is supposed to be an annual, but he is thriving 3 years later!) I highly recommend Proven Winners to all of my friends and family, and every year I buy this brand!Trina Shanahan, Indiana, United States, 4 years ago
This is a show stopping thriller in the shade garden or planter. I have deep shade on my front porch and it is fantastic every year! The leaves are so large and stunning in my large pots, they look terrific with bright lime sweet potato vine, caladium, miniature ferns, and new guinea impatiens. I will definitely buy more this year! Get one and enjoy!!Julie Drew, Indiana, United States, 6 years ago
